    This guy is a hoot. Did you know HCB was a thread salesman who met Oskar Barnack during the screening of one of Oskar's 3-second film shorts? Neither did anyone else.

    He says he has discovered that most history is not factual, but revisionist based on the sensibilities of those who write it... so he decided to have a whack at that sort of thing.

    Long and dense but definitely worth a read, lol:
